Puerto Plata yacht charters

The Puerto Plata yacht charters are considered one of the top 5 activities to share with friends and family when traveling to the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, given the area’s coastal amenities that include diving and snorkeling in the tropical reefs. Chartering a boat is fairly simple, and compared to other destinations the prices in Puerto Plata are quite competitive for groups of 1-20 passengers.

Most private yacht tours depart from Playa Dorada and Sosua, where crystal clear waters allow for great snorkeling in the reefs. All the yacht charters include snorkel gear and crew, plus drinks, food and music to chill in the deck, salon and flybridge. The Caribbean species found in the area can be quite interesting, and are referenced in the Sosua marine life page.

Yellow Tail Snapper

Yellow tail snapper, Blue Chromis, Blue Tang, Squirrel Fish, Sea Horses, Sergeant Major, and many other tropical fish are available in the several reefs along the North Coast, including landmark spots in Sosua. Best time to do snorkeling is 10am-2pm as the sun is right on top at its brightest, meaning also you need to protect your skin with sunscreen, so don’t overexpose it. Morning also is best as waters are calmer, tide is low and winds are gentler.
